The mission of the PCA Foundation is to provide charitable financial services to Christians, enabling them to carry out their stewardship responsibilities and charitable desires to financially support the Kingdom of Jesus Christ through the Presbyterian Church in America and other Christian ministries.
The PCAF’s “niche” is working on the donor’s agenda for charitable giving. Our premier service is the Advise & Consult Fund®, a donor-advised fund. We also serve as Trustee of Charitable Trusts, establish and administer Endowments and Designated Funds for churches, as well as receive and distribute Bequests.
The PCA Foundation’s operating support comes primarily from earnings on accounts, trustee/administrative fees, and some contributions. Unlike many other Foundations, the PCA Foundation is donor-driven — that is, the distributions made are designated or recommended by the donors themselves. Any undesignated gifts received are presently distributed to the Committees and Agencies of the PCA according to General Assembly formula.
